Kindle Õ A Childhood in Malabar A Memoir Ý Kamala Suraiyya Das

In the second world war Kamala and her brother are removed from their parent's home in Calcutta I don't know if it was because of the enchanting cover photograph but I felt like the whole memoir was drenched in sepia A wonderful evocative and soulful retelling of her early childhood memories Kamala Das spins magic out of local gossip Mallu folktales and sparkling characters comprising of her grandmothers and the numerous servants The insecurities brought about through colourism and her resentment towards an overbearing father are mentioned as casually as if one were referencing the weather The curiosity that talkative little Kamala bore in getting to know people and their stories reveals how a writer was born I am always a fan of memoirs and this one was a delightful addition to this year's reads
